Photo's description:
Spodumene Locality: Resplendor, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil (Locality at mindat.org) MUCH BETTER IN PERSON, I MUST SAY FIRST! This marvelously etched, water clear, highly lustrous, doubly terminated crystal of pastel green spodumene is a thing of beauty. It truly looks like a piece of modern sculpture and the effect in person is mesmerizing more than pics can convey. TRUST ME, this is NOT your typical Afghani spod...the Brazilian pieces of this quality have an ethereal brightness and play of faces all their own, and are much more rare. THE TRUE COLOR IN PERSON IS A UNIQUE PASTEL GREEN, HARD TO CONVEY IN PICTURES DUE TO THE GEMMINESS OF THE PIECE - CLEAR LIKE GLASS, SO THE CAMERA LOOKS RIGHT THROUGH IT. A huge stone could be cut from the center of the crystal. This is pristine, and free of any damage at all. It is compelte and 3-dimensional all around, and entirely transparent. I was offered a similar piece some years ago even then, for $6000, by another dealer. These are extremely rare in this quality, and the price is very fair, I think. But, its hard to agree til you've seen it in person... 8.6 x 5.2 x 4.1 cm
